On Etsy since 2015

A love for fairies & nature combined into one!

I've always been drawn to nature; the trees and flowers, and the animals and insects. So even when I was younger, I was outside digging in the dirt with my hands and playing with lizards and snails, as well as many other things. I've just always had a strong appreciation for nature and the natural Earth around me. There's so much beauty to be seen in even the smallest of things, and I want to capture that and let others see it the way I do.

So, as far as how I collect some of my wings, I source most of my wings myself. I'm definitely not squeamish when it comes to collecting dead cicadas from underneath the trees. During the early Summer to Autumn months, cicadas start to emerge from their underground nymph stage where they transform into their winged adult stage taking flight to swarm the trees. Their adult stage is only a few weeks long to breed, and then they drop from the trees and die, their life cycle complete, and I collect them. Living on several wooded acres really helps too! Luckily I have some amazing friends and followers I've connected with that donate their winged finds to me to create with. I also work with butterfly and moth breeders that raise caterpillars to release into the wild populations that send me the ones that don't make it. Estate sales and little antique or thrift stores have also scored me amazing finds from old insect collections, to shadowboxes, and other neat things. Cicadas, dragonflies, moths, butterflies, etc, all have such a natural delicate beauty to them, but in comparison to people they have such short little lives. What I create with their wings is a way for me to immortalize their beauty and spirit, so we can all remember and appreciate them in a magical way.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Will you create jewelry from the wings of an insect I have found, or recreate something you had made before?

Send me a message, and we can work out the details!

Wholesale availability

At this time, I am unable to produce wholesale quantities.

Harming animals for your art

Do you harm or kill these animals for your art? No! I am a huge animal lover and would never kill any animal. All my creations are made with cruelty free and ethically sourced materials.

Legalities

Is it legal for me to own one of your crystallized skulls? It depends on your location. I will not ship animal remains across US borders. Laws regarding animal parts varies by state and it is your responsibility to know your laws pertaining to buying and possessing certain animal remains.

Care instructions

With all purchases of fairy jewelry, a care card is provided that states the following:

♥ To prevent the metal components from tarnishing, keep your jewelry in the plastic bag provided under the batting in the box and store away from heat and humidity.
♥ The jewelry is durable, but handle with care!
♥ Do not store in prolonged sunlight.
♥ It's best not to expose these pieces to any chemicals or alcohol-based products such as perfume, hairspray, household cleaners, or nail polish remover.
♥ I do not recommend showering with this jewelry or getting it wet in any way.

Anything mummified, freeze-dried, and mounted as taxidermy should not get wet in under any circumstances. Keep these items out of direct sunlight and extreme heat/humidity.

Combined shipping

Any open orders you purchase from my shop that qualify will be combined into one shipment.

Meaning, if you make more than one purchase that is going to the same address, all of the items will be shipped into one package if possible.

Certain exclusions may apply. Not limited to,
• Large items like deer or unicorn skulls. These will most likely be shipped alone.
• Mummified or freeze-dried pieces will always ship separately from any pieces containing liquids.

Wing durability

As far as my fairy wing jewelry items go, they are handmade with real wings. If you handle them the same as you would with most fine jewelry, they should do absolutely fine. They should be treated with a kinder touch, but are definitely much more durable than what you'd imagine a real wing to be. A care card comes with all of my wing jewelry, so that should help too!

How I get my wings

I source most of my wings myself. I collect many cicadas during the Summer months after they drop dead from the trees. Living on several wooded acres really helps too! Luckily I have some amazing friends and followers I've connected with that donate their winged finds to me. I also work with butterfly and moth breeders that raise caterpillars to release into the wild populations. Estate sales and little antique or thrift stores have also scored me amazing finds from old insect collections, to shadowboxes, and other neat things. Many insects have such a natural delicate beauty to them. What I create with their wings is a way for me to immortalize their beauty and spirit, so we can all remember and appreciate them in a magical way.
